Xavier Cugat wrote the "Walter Winchell Rumba" for Winchell.
In song, Winchell was often a cynical lyric reference. In the Mel Brooks Broadway musical "The Producers", later adapted to film as The Producers (2005), Leo Bloom (played by Matthew Broderick) sings, "I want to read my name in Winchell`s column" during the song "I Want to Be A Producer"; the Cole Porter composition "Let`s Fly Away," include the lines, "Let`s fly away/ And find a land that`s so provincial/ We`ll never hear what Walter Winchell/ Might be forced to say."

Winchell is also mentioned in Billy Joel`s history-themed song "We Didn`t Start the Fire".
